obama huddled with australian prime minister kevin rudd but took no questions on the new afghanistan and pakistan strategy he will announce tomorrow. at a white house meeting last night, the president issued orders to send upwards of 30,000 additional forces to afghanistan, nearly the amount urgently requested three months ago by general stanley mcchrystal. mr. obama's hand-picked commander in afghanistan. >> clearly general mcchrystal is getting most of what he wants, and therefore, it has to be seen, generally speaking, as a victory for his position. >> and a defeat for vice president biden who argued against sending more combat troops. with 68,000 u.s. fore forces there now, the white house says the additional forces costing roughly $30 billion a year will concentrate on training, not confronting al qaeda or the taliban. >> we are there to partner with the afghans, to train the afghan national security forces, the army and the poe and the poe popo police. that sour main mission. one white house correspondent calls it inept. >> our strategies should not rely upon an accelerated tra

the president at his word, that his plans have stopped the decline in our economy. obama had this to say, quote "we can see clearly now that the steps my administration are taking are making a huge difference, brunting the worst of this recession and helping to bring about its conclusion." end quote. that is fantastic! it's over. i mean, at least the worst of it is over. it is not going to get any worse than it is right now. remember this. because there is only going to be one of us that is right. i personally believe he is mistaken. i will give him credit for that. i hope for the best, i really do. do you think i want to see us destroy ourselfs? sometime starting after the new year, i think you will see how bogus this recovery is, because right now, are you reading the head behinds? they say positive u.s. economic data, u.s. recovery bullies the bulls. u.s. stocks rise. g.d.p. is up, wow! i'm reading the paper thinking this is great! and then and then the bad glenn comes in and he is like, glenn, i got pesky facts for you. i'm like, no, you're such a downer. here are the pesky facts. g.d.p. wa

door of 1600 pennsylvania avenue. and at a year when the obama man spoke straight and zombie is among the most popular costumes perhaps it is fitting that the president came as himself, dressed in casual weekend attire. the president's mother-in-law came as herself. the first lady was a leep pardons complete with cat ears around along with the daughters they all joined in handing out candy. the obamas passing out goody bags loaded with white house m & ms with the president's signature on them and a sweet butter cookie baked by the white house pastry stop. the biggest thrill according to many of the kids was just meeting the president and his family on halloween. celebrations elsewhere including the flam buoyant, outrageous greenwich parade, the hottest costume, thrill of vintage michael jackson and this kate goss lin. octo mom and her brood also very big. swine flu also making a big appearance this year. the swine flu as well as disgraced windler bernard madoff. if you are not that into halloween or baseball the top story this weekend is probably politics because whether you live in e
president obama time to decide if he'll send additional troops to afghanistan. white house said all along they won't make a decision on the troop levels here until this afghan election has been resolved. by all appearances now it will be president karzai. there is the issue of legitimacy. the short one, it gives a new government for the u.s. and other international partners to work with. this is part of the basis of adding troops is there must be a credible, viable partner in afghanistan. everything that has happened with this election process has cast doubt whether or not hamid karzai is that viable credible partner. the corruption is so wide and widespread across all of the government here. there is a real concern that going forward this election may just embolden hamid karzai and prevent him from firing the officials that the u.s. would like to see fired. shannon? >> shannon: now reporting live for us from afghanistan. thank you very much for the update, connor. so what implications will abdullah's withdrawal have for the u.s.? caroline shively standing by with the look at that angle.
the army really believes that. i think the obama administration is more skeptical. >> lauren, there are two schools of thought on the president's protracted process. one is dick cheney school of the president dithering and that he is patient. what repercussions are there for the policy? >> well, our allies are looking to us for a very clear signal as to whether we are going to commit. unfortunately the rhetoric of the president's early months has become a good deal less, shall we say, aggressive, less decisive than where he began. obviously the pakistanis are concerned there might be decline in our commitment to the situation and, frankly, i think what they're detecting is right. i don't think the administration wants to do this. they're trying to figure out some way of extricating themselves, or at least not building up any further, but it is awfully hard. they have boxed themselves in. >> greg's excellent story in the washington post today about how obama is going through province by province to find out the leaders. that is like lbj poring over maps in the vietnam white house in the seco
